HOW TO AVOID BURNOUT

28% of entrepreneurs suffer from some degree of ‘burnout’. It’s a common issue that is rarely discussed. It’s often masked by entrepreneurs seeking different ways to be ‘productive’.

Growthlab have laid down 8 tips to beat burnout.

Some are pretty obvious and straightforward like maintaining a healthy work/life balance. While others are very valuable to note – especially identifying what your true entrepreneurial prerogative is.

  1. Take care of the fundamentals (food, sleep, fitness) first.
  2. Eliminate decisions you don’t need to make
  3. Focus on tasks that are actually moving you forward

THE USEFUL DIGITAL NOMAD WEATHER APP

One vital aspect to choosing where and when to go during your digital nomad travels is the weather. A DN developer released a sweet little web app on reddit that pulls weather data from any city and analyzes it for you.

Buuut there’s a little twist. It rates the weather on how nice it is.

Ohhkayeh. So when is the weather deemed ‘nice’?

If:

  • the temperature and humidity are within a comfortable range (in a t-shirt or sweater).
  • it’s not raining.

That means it’s a big ☹️ for Bangkok or Singapore. As it’s never deemed ‘nice’ there. It’s too damn hot and humid!

A useful app for those that want to avoid rainy seasons on their travels, or need to gauge the best time to visit a different hemisphere.

P.S here’s the Reddit thread to read more about how and why the app was created.

FACEBOOK’S BIGGEST EVER CAMPAIGN

“But then something happened. We had to deal with spam, clickbait, fake news, and data misuse. That’s going to change.Here Together, Facebook.

We don’t often see an advert for Facebook. Well, they’re running their largest marketing campaign in history to (attempt) to repair the privacy fiasco.

They’re (sort of) admitting to the faults that have arisen and that has damaged the platform. While reminding us of what Facebook used to be (interactions with friends, old and new) plus insisting they can return it to its former glory…
